Great experience at Vicious Fishes. Clean and masks worn by all. Atmosphere was pub-like. Food was traditional in nature but then with a yummy twist. Very delicious. Looking forward to the live music coming back. It definitely lends itself to a fun night out of drinks, food and music.

Parents were in town and wanted to try something different. Mason our waiter was excellent. Highly knowledgeable of the menu. Hubby went withThe special of the day which was chorizo meatloaf eggs Benedict and I'll say It was one of the best breakfasts we've ever had. We love upper scale restaurants and tend to go all over the triangle even out of state for great food and this was absolutely amazing. Just the right spice, even the beans were to die for and I don't even care for beans. Corn cakes were perfect. I ordered the typical breakfast it was delicious the potatoes were amazing. Parents ordered shared omelet te. All food was incredible including the coffee. Absolutely loved my rye toast. Eight thumbs up!!

Onions on my salad were very large. Arranged pretty but large onion is not pleasant to bite into. They were open to adding a table to allow more space with our group of 8. Shrimp bisque delicious!

Been wanting to try this place for awhile. Outdoor seating is really nice. Waitstaff really good. I had the fish tacos which were really good. Could have had a bit more rich in them but they were done well. My wife had French dip burger and it was actually cooked perfectly which is not common for burgers that we have observed. Overall was very nice and we will be back!

The food was fairly standard fare; nothing special, but it all tasted good as delivered. The portion sizes were nice, too. The beers were all good, and the house NE IPA was above average. Will visit again just to get another glass of that!

Our table had 3 orders of fish tacos, presentation was sloppy, could have had more fish in each and a small side could have been included for the price. One of the dinners came out and the other 6 came out almost 7-8 mins later. After we received our food there wasn't any follow up for another drink round. Great job with social distancing, employees wearing masks.

After several visits, the food is much improved, compliments to the team for driving improvement back of house. Service was slow, looked like they may have been understaffed. Keep up the good work.
